Hamas media campaign taunts Israel, fortifies battered Gaza public
Reuters ^ | July 13 , 2014 | Noah Browning

Hamas militants warned Israel for the first time, and in Hebrew, of an impending rocket attack, adopting psychological warfare with the Jewish state while trying to raise the morale of Gaza's Palestinians harder hit by Israeli bombardment. [snip] "Our rockets have struck Tel Aviv!" the loudspeaker of a Gaza mosque blared. The roars of men and boys arose from the windows of houses: "God is Great!"

No rocket actually hit Tel Aviv. They were either shot down by Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile interceptor or fell harmlessly on open ground. But that did not matter in Gaza.

With all this great shooting by the Pals , perhaps some of their victorious rockets fired at Jerusalem will hit the al Aqsa mosque , as they similarly knocked out their own Israel provided Gaza electrical supply . Never mind that the rockets were actually launched from an IAF F-16I , utterly destroying the entire dome and supporting structure . Who knew !? Just more great shooting by the Hamas rocketeers !

And I’m sure they shouted “Allah is Greater” rather than God is great as reported.

I didn’t read all the comments at the Yahoo site but a quick look seems to show nearly 100% support for Israel.

With all the protests against Israel defending her citizens and the support for HAMAS, it really means that the Paleostinians support TERROR and mayhem in the world.

This is not about “Free Nelson Mandela”, oops, I mean, Free Palestine. The Israelis do not have a single toe in Gaza, so where's the “Occupation”?

All death & destruction raining down on them is their own doing and the world knows it so, protesters, shut your trap and look all around the Middle East where your “brothers and sister” Muslim Arabs are butchering each other on your friggin’ Holy Month of Ramadan.

How can you Muslims say, “Oh Merciful Allah...blah, blah, blah” when you have no mercy in your hearts for your own kind let alone other human beings? The most hypocritical people unfortunately inhabiting the planet with the rest of us...your enemies and infidels.

I have reached the point where I do not see the logic of arguing with hypocrites. Their world view says it is okay for them to do things that they condemn others for doing.

In everyday life, that's fine, you just walk away. In a war situation, you cannot negotiate with them. You simply have to destroy the leadership and the men and weapons they use to try to enforce their will. Then you hope the rest will see the light. This is how Germany and Japan were defeated in the forties.

The only mistake the Israeli's make is that they are too compassionate. They stop too soon, before the job is done.

No better time...and what about that bright white light that descended toward the spire then shot upward with a flash on the ground. Whatever, time to level to make way for the “Foundation”.

It's more complex than that. The Israelis, from the outset of every campaign since 1982, reluctantly use their power because they have a FALSE conception that the world (UN, US, Europe) will step in and halt any final victory. They also are hypersensitive to losses.

This was true in the past but now the Israelis stop themselves BEFORE others can step in. The Israeli media begin surfacing doubts and problems and then the rest of the world joins in and criticizes Israel.

Israel could destroy HAMAS in 2-3 days but they hold back, fearing hitting noncombatants. This is not what the US, Russia or any other nation would do. Any other nation would obliterate the enemy and be done with them.

Israel is in a Catch-22 and if she wants to survive in the Post-American Global Obamian Retreat, she'd better start taking tough action against the Islammacists.

Look at Europe, the Arabs are storming the Bastille in Paris holding PLO flags and holding cardboard missiles. This is the beginning of the end for Europe.
